It’s time to fire Khupe – MDC-T youths

MDC-T youth assembly boss Happymore Chidziva yesterday fired a salvo at party deputy president Thokozani Khupe, declaring she has outlived her welcome in the party and must be expelled as soon as possible.

Although there were reports of negotiations between Khupe and MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa, the party has witnessed serious power struggles between the two.
Khupe claims to be the legitimate leader, having been elected by congress.

The party’s national council recently gave a seven-day ultimatum against Khupe and other leaders to accept the status quo and join the rest of the leaders or face the full wrath of the constitution.

Although the seven days have expired, Khupe has scoffed at the ultimatum and has maintained her stance on the leadership debacle.

Chidziva said the party must act so that they have clear direction with a single leadership under Chamisa.

“In the spirit of safeguarding the MDC-T party, I demand (both in my personal and representative capacity as the chairman of the youth assembly) the immediate implementation of the national council resolution to expel Thokozani Khupe from the party,” Chidziva said yesterday.

“Her seven-day ultimatum to attend party activities, which she has been absenting herself from for close to eight months, has expired. The further three-day extension to this ultimatum which was given by the president has also since expired.

“Khupe’s continued stay in our movement will cause more harm than good and it’s time we get rid of her. In our clarity and honesty, we state here categorically that we do not have space for rebellious malcontents who are bent on destroying the party.”

Chidziva accused Khupe of failing to respect party organs and resolutions, claiming she has been conducting unsanctioned meetings meant to sabotage the party. He urged youths to toe the line, remain disciplined and defend the vision and legacy of the late MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai.

“To the party president, Advocate Nelson Chamisa, I, as the leader of the youth assembly plead with you to take drastic and necessary action against this continued rebellion and provocations or else we will forever be doomed,” he said.

  4. Comment… Chamisa is copyright of ED.. what he did its coupe..it’s unconstitutional

  5. Chamisa is not legally elected President. He has no power to fire Khupe. This is now a legal issue kwete zve noise izvo. Chamisa knows the implications. Firing Khupe will have this case dragging in Courts. Just move makadaro. Tambai mose mujairane. Khupe has a case against the National Council for imposing Chamisa without following the correct route. If MDC t had no money to go for congress, they were just supposed to elevate Khupe since she was the only Constitutionally elected VP. Chamisa akaba chitanda.

  6. Two cannot walk together unless they agree. Let us not ignore that Zimbabwe is a constitutional democracy where we follow the law. Lets go for a congress and seek Presidential legitimacy to salvage the party.
    Chest-thumbing will only end up in a split and grand defeat.

  7. WHY KHUPE WORRY ABOUT CHAMISA AND MDCT SHE WAS A PROBLEM EVEN DURING THE TIME OF OUR BELOVED LATE FORMER PRESIDENT RICHARD MORGAN TSVANGIRAI.SHE HAVE TO FORM HER OWN PART WITH A NEW NAME.ARI KURWADZIWA NEIKO CHAANODA.
